California Governor Gavin Newsom on Tuesday held a briefing on the state’s coronavirus response after telling “CBS This Morning” it was “unrealistic” to think life as we knew it before the pandemic would be back to normal anytime soon. He empathized with the frustration of state residents who are protesting his stay-at-home orders but urged them to think of their loved ones and others amid their fatigue with the precautions.
Newsom told “CBS This Morning” co-host Tony Dokoupil in an exclusive interview that he feared the worst might not be over for California if the state’s residents did not comply with social distancing and other restrictions.
California has recorded more than 30,000 COVID-19 cases and 1,208 deaths due to the virus, according to the state’s health department.
This event has concluded.
